Since July 2018 two new cell sorters have been operational at the CRCT Cytometry and Cell Sorting Platform.
These two systems were acquired thanks to funding under the last State-Region Planning Contract and support from the team headed by Professor Hervé Avet-Loiseau (CRCT team 13).
The BD Biosciences FACS Melody bench-top cell sorter is equipped with three lasers (488nm, 405nm and 561nm). It enables the measurement of eight fluorescence parameters and can sort two populations simultaneously.
The BD Biosciences FACSAria Fusion system is equipped with four lasers (488nm, 355nm, 405nm and 640nm). It can measure up to 18 fluorescence parameters and sort four cell populations simultaneously.
